I have reached the pinnacle of my professional life as a teacher. A virtuous soul whose initials are P.P. can now be quoted (on the midterm exam essay) as having said,
"The steps of programming are all very important. The most important however is the psuedocode [sic] step. Without psuedocode [sic] you can do nothing. The coding is what gets the code into the computer, but without proper psuedocode [sic] you might never finish coding. In the real world it is the same way. No professional jumps right in. He sits down and psuedocodes [sic]. This way he will be well prepared for future assignments. Also in case any changes come up it is easy to add lines to your psuedocode [sic]."
